My kids since they were little decorate ornaments however they want, as long as the year is on it somewhere. Then they wrote a note about the best thing that happened to them that year, their favorite part of Christmas that year, and what they want the next year to bring. The note goes inside the ornament, and eventually when they have their own home and their tree, they’ll get all the ornaments back. This one is my sons fingers dipped in paint, turned into snowmen, from quite a few years ago.

Tonight we are driving around to look at lights, changing into our special Christmas PJs (new each year, open on Christmas Eve), setting out cookies for Santa and then snuggling in for a Gringo viewing, read The Night Before Christmas, and then sleep until oh, 530 AM when frenzy begins, then homemade cinnamon rolls and lazy morning with all the new toys before sled riding and snow ball fight! Normally there are family dinners and parties mixed in but low key with special moments :)

Thanks! What a nice way to spend the holiday!

Everyone gets an ornament depicting something major that happened to them that year. It’s fun to go through them when you’re decorating the tree each year. The kid loves it, so do we.

We also make ornaments using sculpey. They enjoy looking at the ones they made as little kids

I know I don't have to attend, but shouldn't it be convenient for guests?
